North Fork Area Updates & Upcoming Events

We wanted to keep our guests informed about some of the new places popping up on the North Fork. The summer season brings the North fork to life. Here are some big updates & upcoming events.


 Kontokosta Winery: Kontokosta is Greenport’s first winery and the only winery on the North Fork that is actually on the Sound. You can see the Sound from the tasting room. If you feel so inclined you can even walk to the endge of the bluff and look out onto the beach and the Sound. It is trully a relaxing and beautiful way to drink wine. We are so happy to welcome them to the North Fork. Aside the the view the entire building is made from repurposed materials and runs on wind power!


Shelter Island BBQ @ The Pridwin: Every Wednesday night until Labor Day the Pridwin hosts a BBQ Cookout like no other. They feature live music and an all-you-can-eat cookout menu. You can take the Shelter Island Ferry over or go by boat because they have dock space but it is first come, first serve. If you plan on going just call ahead so there’s enough food for everyone! (631-749-0476)



Moonlight Mondays & Twilight Tuesdays @ Corey Creek Vineyard: It’s a great feeling when you don’t have to leave the vineyard at 5PM or you can actually stop by a vineyard after work. Corey Creek Winery offers two late nights during the week of great food & Live music til’ 9PM. They have a BBQ by Custom Caterers on Monday and a rotating food truck on Tuesdays.


Provisons + Ingredients & The Winemaker’s Studio: This little shop is a must visit located next to The Winemaker’s Studio (also a must visit). Stock up on locally grown foods, meats & cheeses to take home with you. After you’re done stocking up for the summer wander next door to The Winemaker’s Studio by Anthony Nappa Wines and try out some exquisite local wines created by local winemakers & vineyards.

dsc_3830dsc_4148Bring your family and friends to one of the North Fork’s best summer festivals in the height of the strawberry season.

“By late June on the North Fork the strawberry crop is reaching its peak and bursting with flavor. On Father’s Day weekend, at the peak of the strawberry harvest, the Mattituck Lions Club brings the community together for a special weekend of fun and purpose. Whether you’re here year-round, are a seasonal resident or are drawn here by the Festival, you’re in for a wonderful time while raising money for local non-profits.

Dig into the strawberry shortcake, sample the strawberries dipped in chocolate, try the strawberries any way you like them. Head over to the rest tent to enjoy live music.  Then find out what over 100 arts and craft vendors have available for sale.

Cheer as the new Strawberry Queen is crowned.  Experience the midway rides. Taste foods from around the world. The fun keeps going after the sun sets, so bring lawn chairs and enjoy the fireworks on Thursday and Friday.” –

My Morning Walk in Southold on the North Fork of Long Island

My Morning Walk through the gardenMy morning walk on the beachIMG_0522This June morning was perfect weather for a walk on the beach and through the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast gardens. Sitting by the waters edge on the Long Island Sound beach in Southold, listening to the sound of the waves lapping gently on the shore and the birds calling was so relaxing and beautiful I made a short video to share with you. You can see it on the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast Facebook Page. Enjoy, and please come visit soon.
